Is it possible to nest commands?

7 posts in this topic

I have a couple of files i want to check and i wondered if it was possible to nest the commands

$avg_test = FileExists("C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG\AVG10\avgui.exe")        
$avg_ver = FileGetVersion("C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG\AVG10\avgtray.exe")

so that the Filegetversion command works inside the filexists one?

but i still need both the variables for other bits

Thx

FileExists(FileGetVersion("C:\Program Files (x86)\AVG\AVG10\avgtray.exe")

In some case AutoIt Functions can be nested. But in this case it will "Get The Version" e.g. 1.1.0.0 and then it will "Check The File Exists" i.e. 1.1.0.0. Is there any reason you want to change what you currently have?

Chimaera,

Given the return values of those 2 commnads I fail to see how you could nest those two in particular, but in principle you can nest commands quite happily. Here is some lines from my code - the SREs in the first make it look even more complicated: :P

$sList = StringReplace(StringReplace(StringRegExpReplace($sList, "(\^|\$|\.)", "\\$1"), "?", "."), "*", ".*?")

Return Int((Abs(DllStructGetData($tLOGFONT, 1)) + 1) * .75)

Local $iLengthMs = Number(BinaryToString("0x" & $sTemp))

Switch _WinAPI_GetClassName(GUICtrlGetHandle($vCID[$i]))

I do this sort of thing only when I have debugged the code - to start with I use separate variables for each of the embedded commands and then meld the whole thing when it works. :x

The only time I have found this to fail is with DllCall - as far as I could determine you need to use single variables as the parameters.

And those are not the same file. you want to check the version of a different file, nested in the fileexists command for some other file, and get variables returned for both commands?

I was doing the double check on 2 files because the fileexists as an extra check the program is installed like a double check cos the file version is still a file exists but gives me the version which i need

I prob didnt use a good example sorry

ill have a play around with it

One more thought is there a special way to put them together?

for eg $sList = StringReplace(StringReplace(StringRegExpReplace($sList, "(\^|\$|\.)", "\\$1"), "?", "."), "*", ".*?")

are all the bold bits all the normal parts of string replaces lumped together at the end?

not like this $sList = StringReplace(finish this bit then)StringReplace( finishe this bit then)etc

Its some stuff i was doing here

trying to lose lines of uneded code by adding them together

And Geez Melba what is going on in your code i have no idea :x

Chimaera,

You have to fit each section into the correct place in the whole like this: :x

$sList = StringReplace(                                                                          , "*", ".*?")
                       StringReplace(                                                 , "?", ".")
                                     StringRegExpReplace($sList, "(\^|\$|\.)", "\\$1")

That is why I develop the code using separate variables. :P
